The clock & calendar are essential tools to organize our time, but what about the original timekeeper that tells us the qualities of time, planetary motion? It's there to guide us if only we look up, so isn't it time to hang it on a wall, too?

So I created the FutureGraph, an at-a-glance, full-color forecast of your personal planetary time. So you can finally see your future and make the most of the super-charged cycles of abundant opportunities [Jupiter], surprise upgrades [Uranus], creative expansions [Neptune], personal power [Pluto] and demanding challenges [Saturn. . .just knowing when it ends is a plus!]

"Always fall in with what is given and make it over your way. Not against, with." ~ Robert Frost

"The stars incline; they don't compel." ~ Elly Molina


Jupiter through Pluto are the longest, most significant cycles during a lifetime, and each cycle is displayed on your FutureGraph as waves that build, crest and recede. Peak waves are heightened activity, change and culmination points, and multiple peaks are naturally the most eventful. All planetary dynamics have positive and negative potentials that depend on your past and present actions, whether or not you remember them. Within the cycles of cause & effect, free will reigns supreme.

Planetary cycles range from frequent and brief to rare and lengthy. Moon cycles are frequent and last less than a day, while Pluto cycles are rare and last about 3 years. A Saturn cycle lasts about 6 months and occurs every 7 years. Everyone knows the '7 year itch' - the frustrated impulse to make a change - though few know that Saturn is the instigator.

"It is a wise person who rules the stars, a fool who is ruled by them. ~ Boston's Cosmic Muffin


Above is the 2016-17 FutureGraph of the most controversial figure on the planet, during the wildest year of the century. The peaks in November & January and drama throughout 2017 made an accurate forecast a cinch, especially relative to HRC's 2016-17 time cycles. Below is 2020 & I'll post the democrat nominee's 2020 FutureGraph when s/he's chosen. . .

Astrology & the World's First Computer:

"The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient Greek analogue computer used [for] astrological purposes." ~ Wikipedia

The world's first known computer calculated planetary cycles over 2000 years ago! It's true! Discovered in 1901 in a shipwreck off the coast of Antikythera, Greece, the Antikythera Mechanism turns history on its head. For decades, researchers painstakingly reverse-engineered the mechanism and finally confirmed the technological knowledge of the ancients and astrology's place as the first science.

"If the ancient greek scientists could produce these gear systems 2000 years ago, the whole history of western technology would have to be re-written." - Scientist & researcher Anthony Freeth on the Antikythera Mechanism

"Astronomy compels the soul to look upward and leads us from this world to another." ~ Plato


The first known use of astrology is lost in time, but the science is eternal. Astrology defines our electric lives through electric time on this spinning blue ball in space.

"The energy of the mind is the essence of life." ~ Aristotle

P L A N E T S ~ F I R S T

Most people associate astrology with the zodiac, yet without the 10 planets the zodiac is meaningless. Planetary dynamics are the foundation of astrology and our cosmic guide through time, relationships and self-understanding.
sun & moon are referred to as planets for brevity

"The celestial bodies are the cause of all
that takes place in the sublunar world." ~ Thomas Aquinas

Above: A standard birth chart & a BirthPrint

A standard birth chart is impossible for all but astrologers to read, so I designed the BirthPrint, a birth chart that comes alive with meaning for all.

With your first breath, your consciousness is imprinted with the planetary electro-dynamics of that moment in time, your celestial DNA. The Sanskrit word for breath is prana, the universal life force that sustains us in this space & time.

Your BirthPrint displays the magic moment you entered this world, so you can see your internal celestial mechanics, confirm what you know to be true and gain more confidence in your strengths and gifts and a deeper insight into all areas of your life.

The beauty of astrology is that it's accessible at every level of understanding, from simple to profound, just like mathematics, which forms its (astro) logical foundation. And all you need to know to begin to read any BirthPrint are 3 essential basics:

all clearly displayed on your BirthPrint™. . .

"The stars in the heavens sing a music if only we had ears to hear." ~ Pythagoras

Imagine your mind is a melody. . .

PLANETS are the notes
ASPECTS are their arrangements
SIGNS are the instruments

Planetary dynamics are the mechanics of energy through which consciousness manifests, sharing form & function with the atom.

Aspects are the conduits formed between planets at specific degrees of distance. The best known aspect is the opposition, though most know it only as the full moon, when the Sun & Moon are 180 degrees apart and sh^t gets crazy.

Planetary dynamics form the whole of your consciousness and are generally perceived as your singular self; but sometimes their separate parts are strongly felt, like when the heart [moon] and mind [sun] are in conflict. . .

"Astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity."
~ Dr. Carl G. Jung


The best kept secret in the field of psychology is the fact that Dr. Carl G. Jung, the founder of Analytical Psychology, was a closet astrologer who based his theory of the three levels of consciousness on planetary dynamics.

It's a simple yet profound system: the conscious mind is symbolized by the Sun through Mars; the unconscious is symbolized by Jupiter & Saturn [also referred to as the subconscious]; and the collective unconscious is symbolized by Uranus, Neptune & Pluto.

Most significant are aspects that connect unconscious to conscious planets and brings them into conscious awareness. The aspects determine their quality of expression - harmonious, facilitative, stressful, strengthening - while childhood programming largely determines their level of potential. Nature & Nurture are a team and a healthy sense of self will help reach the highest potential. So it's immeasurably helpful to know both your planetary dynamics and the defining events of your childhood so you can embrace your strengths and re-program where needed to become a true master of your destiny.

Dr. Jung kept the roots of his theory hidden to avoid the academic ridicule that persists to this day. So most Analytical Psychologists overlook the role of astrology in their work and take months and years to gain insights they could gain in a day by analyzing the dynamics of their patients' BirthPrints.

"The value of astrology. . .is not its power to predict what the gods have in store for humans, but its ability to reveal the god-like powers that reside in the depths of every human being." ~ Glenn Perry, Ph.D.

And who knew?

'Psyche' is classic greek for 'Soul'. . .

So psychology is soul logic. . .

and a BirthPrint makes every soul an open book!

There's nothing like a good analogy, so here are two more. . .

Like the 26 letters in every book, every BirthPrint is a unique combination of 10 planetary dynamics. And learning to read a BirthPrint is as simple for an adult as learning to read a book is for a child. And both offer an empowering world of insights that never end.

To use a math analogy, knowledge of only your sun sign equates to single digit addition, while knowledge of the astrological basics - PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS equates to basic math, a huge leap in understanding that takes little time. And like math, you can stop at the basics and do just fine, or explore far beyond, into the woowoo realms.

Astrology is from the ancient root words aster [star] and logos [logic], so the best analogies are naturally mathematics, phonetics and music - the entirely logical systems we all depend on.

"The soul of the newly born baby is marked for life by the pattern of the stars at the moment it comes into the world; unconsciously remembers it and remains sensitive to the return of configurations of a similar kind." ~ Johannes Kepler, Harmonics Mundi

Planets, Aspects & Signs in More Detail


The ascendant, also called the rising sign, is the zodiac sign on the eastern horizon at the time of birth. The ascendant is defined as your persona - how others see you - and it enhances, subdues or otherwise modifies your planetary dynamics.

The ascendant sign is placed on the [1st house] cusp of a birth chart - the Wheel of Life. The wheel is divided into 12 Houses; each house represents specific life issues. Your ascendant sign determines where the planets reside on the Wheel and which life issues have heightened relevance in your lifetime.

But.. the ascendant and house system require an EXACT birth time to calculate, which many people don't know and can't access.

The good news is, the essential basics, the planets, aspects & signs, do not require an exact birth time*. And though the ascendant and life issues are informative, they're not essential.

[astrologer Benjamin Franklin considered the ascendant and house system irrelevant..just saying..]

So I offer two BirthPrint types:

A Solar BirthPrint., which does not require an exact birth time, the Sun sign is on the 1st house cusp and the houses are a silent backdrop to the planets, aspects & signs.

A Natal BirthPrint, which requires an exact birth time, puts the ascendant on the 1st house cusp, displays the planets in their proper houses and reveals the life issues that are most significant.

All BirthPrints are Solar BirthPrints, unless a Natal BirthPrint, is requested.

* The Moon is the only planet that moves more than a degree a day, moving about 12 degrees daily. When an exact or approximate birth time is unknown, using a noon birth time means the Moon won't be more than 6 degrees off, usually less. Not ideal, but workable

solar birthprint & natal birthprint

birthPrint copyright 1994

Every BirthPrint includes an explanation of the three essential basics: planets, aspects & signs, so you can begin to analyze it yourself; you're the most qualified since you know yourself best experientially. And you may order a BirthPrint with or without a two-page analysis by yours truly. [any analysis by any astrologer who has no knowledge of your childhood programming and isn't psychic is largely speculative; so the rare analytical astropsychologist who hears your story is a find!]

Your BirthPrint is a beautiful mandala that inspires a lifetime of empowering insights.

"Every living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe. Though seemingly affected only by its immediate surrounding, the sphere of external influence extends to infinite distance." ~ Nikola Tesla

Niels Bohr & Plato's Microcosm/Macrocosm

"Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real." ~ Physicist Dr. Niels Bohr

In the early 20th century, quantum physicist Dr. Niels Bohr discovered that our solar system has the same form as an atom, so what about function? The atom functions as 'nature's building block', so does the solar system function the same way? Did Dr. Bohr validate astrology 100 years ago?

"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms
of energy, frequency and vibration." ~ Nikola Tesla

"Infinity is God. God, infinity, all the same. . .electromagnetic forces underlying all. . .electromagnetic force intelligent." ~ Galaxy Being

Astrologers and quantum physicists share one prevailing belief: everything is energy. Astrologers have known this for thousands of years, while physicists in the last century have finally caught up, sort of. Their 'Theory of Everything' is defined as four fundamental forces: Gravity, Strong force, Weak Force & Electromagnetism.

The most celebrated of the Fab Four is gravity; it gets most of the attention but has a shallow reach and sometimes it's a drag.

Then there's the strong force and weak force that toil together obscurely to hold the manifest world together. Without them there'd be no way to Let It Be.

But the real star of the Fab Four is E L E C T R O M A G N E T I S M; it's millions of times more forceful than gravity and goes on and on across the universe, possessing and caressing us in an infinite, supercharged embrace.

An obvious example of electromagnetism at work is telecommunications, creating sound and images from apparent thin air! Radio, television, even the words you're reading all manifest through waves and frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum.

And each one of those inventions began as an idea in a human brain, the most supremely perfected transmitter and receiver.

Every moment in time is pregnant with possibilities that manifest through consciousness; and it's been scientifically demonstrated that energy observed is energy affected:

"[A] beam of electrons is affected by the act of being observed. . .when under observation, electrons are being "forced" to behave like particles and not like waves."

Within an earthly construct of free will and cause & effect, all souls dance to the music of the spheres.

Whatever we may call it, there's still so much to learn about our invisible world of energy.

"There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter." ~ Physicist Max Planck

Astrology in the Bible. . .

"There shall be signs in the sun, the moon and the stars." ~ Jesus Christ

"The HEAVENS declare the glory of God and the firmament shows his handiwork. Day after day utters his speech and night after night shows his knowledge. There is no tongue or language where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the Earth and their words to the ends of the world. In them he has set a tabernacle for the sun." ~ Psalm 19:1-4

"I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness." ~ Physicist Max Planck


Free will and cause & effect are the divine laws in which planetary dynamics operate. Though 'luck' may seem random, it's an earned effect, whether or not we remember the cause. The Creator started the celestial engine then took a backseat, so to speak.

The heavens bespeak the glory of the Lord and the vault of heaven reveals His handiwork." ~ Genesis

Energy never dies and re-embodiment of the spirit is the divine law of cause and effect. What goes around comes around. . .and around and around. We inherit the world we collectively create, so we're truly all in this together.

Whether conscious or unconscious, we're driven by the spirit's impulse to grow and evolve. And because free will reigns supreme in both body and spirit, we choose the circumstances we're reborn into, always an echo of past actions and relationships - no square pegs in round holes.

For over 40 years, Dr. Ian Stevenson investigated the stories of thousands of children who remember their past lives. Similar appearance, personality and biological traits from the most recent life and accurate, vivid memories of past events and people leave little doubt of reincarnation.

Since Dr. Stevenson's passing in 2007, his collaborator, Jim B. Tucker, continues this groundbreaking research at the University of Virginia. And he recently released the book Return to Life: Extraordinary Cases of Children Who Remember Past Lives.

Dr. Stevenson's case studies are all available in print. And his book Where Reincarnation and Biology Intersect suggests that spirit memory imprints on DNA.

"The teaching most securely identified with Pythagoras is metempsychosis, or the "transmigration of souls", which holds that every soul is immortal and, upon death, enters into a new body. He may have also devised the doctrine of musica universalis, which holds that the planets move according to mathematical equations and thus resonate to produce an inaudible symphony of music." ~ Wikipedia on Pythagoras

"Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe - a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble." ~ Albert Einstein


The principles of energy are illustrated in ancient forms across the globe. A carving from Renaissance Italy of the Music of the Spheres resembles the chakra system and the judaic tree of life - the 'sephirot'. And all correspond to the spine and to planetary dynamics. . .

music of the spheres; chakra system; tree of life

DNA resembles the ancient Egyptian caduceus - two serpents around a staff. And the caduceus symbolizes the central nervous system around the spinal column. And space contains nebulas that resemble DNA. The large is reflected in the small and everything is connected, apparently to Kevin Bacon...

"The question of all questions for humanity, the problem which lies behind all others and is more interesting than any of them, is that of the determination of man's place in nature and his relation to the cosmos." ~ T.H. Huxley


map section of the human genetic code

Geneticists have been collecting data for a few decades, looking for patterns to help them predict human character and behavior. Astrologers have done the same for thousands of years, yet geneticists who ridicule astrology proudly claim there's a 'leadership gene'.

It's been scientifically demonstrated that DNA consists of shifting photons of light, as reported by David Wilcock in his best-selling book, The Synchronicity Key. So I believe the day will come when the connection between DNA and planetary dynamics is discovered, assuming it hasn't been already.


In 1998, Robert O. Becker's best-selling book The Body Electric enlightened millions. Becker was a pioneer in the field of regeneration and its relationship to electrical currents in all living things. His work has been expanded into many areas, most notably the healing arts.


In 1939, Ukranian engineer Semyon Kirlian began to photograph the force field within and around everything, even inanimate objects, like these two pennies for your thoughts..

"The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts.
The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins.
The moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver forever.
Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus?
But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time."

~ D.H. Lawrence

"Yes Virginia, Pluto is a Planet!"
~ Dr. Richard Binzel of MIT

The vote to demote Pluto was underhanded and highly contentious, in arguably the most Plutonian time in recorded history.

"Pluto is the second-most complex, interesting planet in our solar system behind Earth"

"[O]nly 424 astronomers were allowed to vote, out of some 10,000 professional astronomers around the globe."

[A]stronomers are already circulating a petition that would try to overturn the IAU decision."

NASA missions may re-elevate Pluto and Ceres from dwarf planets to full-on planet status.

"A fierce backlash has begun against the decision by astronomers to strip Pluto of its status as a planet. [T]he lead scientist on Nasa's robotic mission to Pluto has lambasted the ruling, calling it "embarrassing". And the chair of the committee set up to oversee agreement on a definition implied that the vote had effectively been "hijacked". Dr Alan Stern...told BBC News: "It's an awful definition; it's sloppy science and it would never pass peer review.""

About Astrology & Me

Hi.. my name is Linda MacLeod Goodman. I've been an astrologer in my home state of Massachusetts for over 40 years. I was first introduced to astrology at 13 when my big sister bought me Linda Goodman's Sun Signs, a godsend for an insecure teen. I took that book everywhere and read to anyone who'd indulge me. Like millions of people, Sun Signs set me on the path of ancient truth and it's an honor to share Linda Goodman's name. [My ex joked it's why I married him, not true, but it did turn out to be the best thing about him:]

The '70s were a heady time, with acclaimed astrologers just bus stops away in Boston, so my sister and I attended lectures with Isabel Hickey, Francis Sakoian, Oscar Weber and others. Then in 1974 astrologer Paul Guercio moved to our town and held small classes within walking distance, so off we went to have our minds blown in an intimate setting. In 1980 I began a five year apprenticeship with Paul that became a forty-five year friendship. And in the early 90s he developed the first computer-programmed graph of future cycles he called TimeTraks. And with a lifelong passion for politics he made political predictions on tv and radio for over 20 years.

Paul passed away this past March and he is sorely missed by many. His keep it simple approach inspired me in 1994 to create visual tools that remove the middleman and help people help themselves, as this fundamental science is meant to do.

I hope you find what you're looking for.

"The Vegetative Universe, opens like a flower from the Earths center In which is Eternity. It expands from Stars to the Mundane Shell. And there it meets Eternity again, both within and without." ~ William Blake
